Everywhere All at Once
February 5 — 28, 2015

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce “Everywhere All at Once,” an exhibition of work by Bay Area–artist Vanessa Marsh. This presentation will feature, among other works, a new series of landscapes distinguished as much by their pared-down, graphic aesthetic—which she achieves by harnessing photogramic techniques—as they are by their mysterious, dream-like moods. In some works, space is articulated by layering multiple two-dimensional planes, or what Marsh likens to independent, freely-moving tectonic plates.

Other landscapes dramatically collapse depth by utilizing a single plane, such as Landscape #7, which depicts crisscrossing strands of pennant flags at close range.
